The government on Monday has convened an all-party meeting ahead of budget session that is starting tomorrow, to seek oppositions’ support for the smooth functioning of the Assembly sessions in both the houses. However, Trinamool Congress is expected to skip the meet that will start at 11:30 AM on Monday.

Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan has also called for a similar meeting of leaders of all political parties in both the Houses on Monday evening at 7pm.

Budget will be presented on Wednesday by finance Minister Arun Jaitley. On Tuesday, President Pranab Mukherjee will address a joint sitting of the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha before the Budget Session.

The Economic Survey will also be presented on the first day of the session.

It is worth to note here, that winter session of parliament that was held in November-December last year, witnessed ruckus and blockade over demonetisation issue.
